I like Diana Krall, but I enjoy this much more. Mel Tormé's voice is angelic ! And Steve Hoffman's mastering got it all right. More SACDs Mr Hoffman please !

Hoffman has stopped releasing SACDs. This, along with others, are OOP and won't be done again.

If you want more Steve Hoffman masterings, you have to buy Acoustic Sounds 45rpm LPs. These are usually the best sounding versions of these albums, on any format. I recently got the "Art Pepper + 11" LP set, and it blows the SACD version away, although my SACD player is superior to my vinyl equipment.

When asked why he doesn't do SACD releases of these titles, Hoffman replies that he is just hired to do the LP mastering job and he does not choose the titles and format of the reissues.
